      This book was a combination of romance and a sad piece of historical fiction If you re big on historical fiction, you might not appreciate the focus on the romance If you re big on romance, you ll be like, WTF Louisa Elliott comes from a poor, but gentle, family She was born illegitimate and works as a ladies companion She crosses paths with the handsome and dashing Robert Duncannon He is also intrigued by her and the romance ensues Strict social codes of the time prevent the two of from forming [...]

      Ann Victoria Roberts weaves a very fascinating and believable romance around the bare bones of her own family history She does so in a most compelling manner and demonstrates a superb ability to paint beautiful pictures with her prose.The story of Louisa Elliott commences in 1892 when she is overcome by her emotions and becomes entangled in an ill fated love affair She displays a great spirit of independence which, despite there being a queen on the throne of Great Britain, was contrary to the s [...]

      When I saw this sub titled A Classic Love Story my smile drooped, however, it s there, so get it read Classic it is, only in the way that Catherine Cookson and Charlotte Bronte are, definitely NOT Jane Austen This reads to me like a social document, comparisons with the wealth and the poverty and the overbearing snobbery of the Victorians at their worst The heroine of the title, however, is no normal heroine, indeed, someone who is so shamed by her background, and so rigid in her concept of Vic [...]

      This is a wonderful historical romance I have to admit I started reading Liam s Story first and then was like, wait, this family saga is way too riveting, I have to go back and read it from the start, and then I couldn t put the book down I will admit I am a historical fiction fan and I had the pleasure of interviewing the author a while back and she s awesome I nearly read the book in one sitting though it is a hefty volume and I m not so great at binge reading e books Even with bleary eyes and [...]

      This is a rewrite of an earlier novel by Ann Victoria Roberts Set in the 1890s in England, it has an interesting historical setting, leading up to the Boar War The characters are very much entrenched in Victorian values The main focus is on the romance between Louisa and Robert, the forbidden and inescapable passion between them However, I found the character of Louisa s cousin, Edward, the most endearing The story is threaded with many familial relationships and conflicts and though a little dr [...]

      A well researched book that moves between York and Dublin at the end of the 19th century The characters are well drawn and come alive on the page The social conditions of the time, both in England and Ireland, are painted starkly but most of all, the status of women is explored in some depth It is a long book and for me, at times, it was a little slow paced Overall, it is a great read for anyone who likes a good romance.

    8. Elaine Cougler on said:

      Louisa Elliott, a novel by Ann Victoria Roberts, provides an eventful insight into 19th century s shown through the events of the title character s life Louisa give modern day feminists the sense that, even at the turn of the 19th 20th century, many people were beginning to question the double standard of society s rules Day to day life of the time is minutely described although I must admit to skimming those details to get on with the plot An engrossing book.

      I really enjoy this book I find myself gravitating to it every summer Nothing too deep, but the characters are likeable and I found myself caring about what happens to them even though I know and understanding how they got themselves in the messes their lives become and the final resolution is satisfying.

    10. Karen on said:

      200 pages too longg fat book, which I love and especially the time period 1890 s York England, but would have been a better book had it been shorter A good story with dashing characters and people being people but doing things that were frowned upon during Queen Victoria s time.

    11. Mary on said:

      I read this book after reading Liam s story which is about Louisa s children I did enjoy it but may have enjoyed it if read in the proper order Liam s story was def my favourite.

      This book is what I was looking for to read on a lazy evening weekend Nothing revolutionary but a very good read.

    13. Regina on said:

      Wonderful, epic, period romance along the lines of Jane Eyre I remember poring over this book during long afternoons when my now 22 year old daughter was taking her afternoon naps.

      Interesting take on historical romance Young governess Louisa Elliott falls in love with married Officer Robert Duncannon in Victorian England She becomes his mistress and bears him some children, then decided to leave him because the moral stress of being a mistress with children is too much And then she ACTUALLY leaves him You don t see that too often Not a great book, but likeable enough.

    17. Cindy on said:

      A Victorian romance that my mom LOVED I enjoyed the read but I did not like 2 of the 3 main characters very much Perhaps I m too judgmental of their fatal flaws The cousins Edward ended up marrying after living together celibate for five years This was not the ending I wanted I wanted Louisa reunited with the father of her 3 children, Robert Duncannon Oh well.
